Cambodian and Russian government officials met in Moscow on Tuesday and agreed on “accelerating the establishment of the Nuclear Energy Information Center” in the Kingdom.
They also agreed to cooperate on constructing the centre, and on the sort of training Cambodia would need to receive from Russia in order to establish it, although the requirements were not specified in a brief statement posted on the Ministry of Environment’s official Facebook page.
“Both sides agreed to allow the Cambodia-Russia joint working group to continue to discuss the technical aspects of the process soon enough,” the statement reads.
In September of 2017, both countries signed an agreement to cooperate in the field of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
Officials at the Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Mines and Energy yesterday declined to provide further details of Tuesday’s meeting, saying that they were waiting for the Cambodian delegation to return.
Both countries first floated plans to establish the Nuclear Energy Information Center in 2015, and have signed several agreements since.
